Awesome surroundings and beautiful facilities. However, paying $500+ a night I would expect a little peace and quiet around the pool. I know this is not an adults only property, but the pool being so big, could easily have a section for adults only.. There was a kid pool but the kids were all over... It was hard to have a drink at the swim up bar as it was full of loud kids.... Secondly, this place really takes advantage by charging outrageous prices for food and drink... The outdoor dinner, bbq was ok... but not worth $120 per person without alcohol.. just a few salads and grilled kebabs... A hamburger at the pool costs $32 and a can of coke $10, while a shot of tequila - I paid $28.... Keep this in mind when booking this resort... you can easily go bankrupt spending on food and drink.
Dear Wioletta, Thank you for posting your review. Your feedback about the price is duly noted. We will discuss it with our management for pricing review. Sincerely, Husam Khraisat Executive Assistant Manager
Great with some concerns”
Awesome setting, beautiful facilities. However, if after paying $600 a night you want some peace and quiet around the pool forget it. There were many families with small children here... the resort needs to set aside one section of the very large pool as adults only... There were children everywhere.. at the swim up bar too.. very noisy. Secondly, the prices for food and drinks here are astronomical. I paid $32 for a hamburger, and $28 for a shot of tequila. Yes, you are in the middle of the desert, but this is over the top in taking advantage of people.
Dear Wioletta, Thank you for posting your review. Yoru feedback about the price is duly noted. We will discuss it with our management for pricing review. Sincerely, Husam Khraisat Executive Assistant Manager
everything is just perfect! it's the best choice!
Dear Fan, Thank you for taking time to give us a great score and your honest feedback on our resort. With great pleasure I can read that you enjoyed your stay with us in the Empty Quarter and I hope to welcome you back soon in Qasr Al Sarab for another perfect stay. Best regards, Adrian Stoppe General Manager
This place was easily the most unique place I think I have ever stayed. It is literally in the middle of nowhere which makes it awesome. Yes, it is a little pricey but you are paying for the location. The meals here are a little expensive so keep that in your budget. Other than that we loved swimming in the pool and hiking the sand dunes at night. This is a memory I will never forget.
Dear Nathan, Thank you for writing your review. We are happy to hear that you had an enjoyable experience. We look forward to welcome you back soon. Sincerely, Husam Khraisat Executive Assistant Manager
Amazing resort in an amazing desert location”
We stayed two nights there with my wife and have been blown away by this place. The location is in an amazingly beautiful protected desert area. The dunes are magnificent. Hotel is built in arabian style that suits the place nicely. Everything was great
Dear Guillame, Thank you for your review! We are truly happy that you had a wonderful experience in QAS with your wife. Indeed, the beautiful landscape of Liwa desert and the resort is breathtaking. Thank you for your wonderful compliments. Sincerely, Axel Bethke General Manager
Truly, a lifetime experience!”
Qasr al Sarab is much more than just a hotel. It is a real desert experience in the romantic tradition of literature and film. Our eight-year-old son is still talking about the sand dunes, the camels and the French fort-style accommodation. It is not cheap, but the cost is soon forgotten.
Dear Tom, Thank you for your beautiful review and for staying with us. I was very pleased to know how much you enjoyed your visit with us and would like to thank you for letting us know how impressed you were with the accommodation and service. It is with a smile on our face while we read your feedback and how your son was deeply captivated about the experience. Once again, our heartfelt appreciation for sharing your wonderful memories and looking forward to the pleasure of welcoming you again the not too distant future. War sunny greetings from Liwa Desert, Axel Bethke and the team of Qasr Al Sarab
Fantastic stay with arabic touch”
The hotel is located in the middle of the desert surrounded by big sand dunes with a mythic atmosphere. The hotel and facilities are build in Arabic style. The room we had was clean and very spacious. (room with terrace/balcony) The bathtub was excellent (very big), the view from the balcony was great. The bed/mattress, pillows and duvet were awesome. Best sleep ever. I even considered to buy the brand... You can do many thing around and the pool gives you a relaxed oasis feeling. I can definitely recommend this hotel. Enjoy!
Too good to be true”
4 hours car driving makes us tired but it really worth it. The view and automosphere is too good to be true just bcz of the isolated location. Imagine travel lonely with a camal and meet an oasis. It is really paradise. Good staff, good food, good room.Though need to pay much but it is really a dream land in my life. Hope people comes here to keep it could maintain for a long long time. I hope I can visit here again.
This is a special place. The resort feels like an Arabian oasis in the middle of the desert. Although it is a recent construction, it feels authentic and the architecture is amazing, you feel like being in an ancient fortress village. The food choices are all good, sometimes simply too much! Good service and nice activities, but do note that even very young children will have to pay for the activities. Mornings are best when it starts getting hot.
There is nothing to fault with the hotel. It is a beautiful resort in ABic style amidst the beautiful Empty Quarter. Food is great too. We needed a tour to AlAin the next day and they were able to arrange one day before. Perhaps the only con is the massively overpriced car transfer.
Great location. Can improve on food menu. Very nice and relaxing but didn’t get the 5* feel”
Great staff-(room boy-murali great asset) Chef was friendly and humble. Breakfast didn’t buy me was basic. Check in 2 hour late reason given previous guest didn’t leave on time. Not a 5 star example is it. Breakfast- baby chair was always given damaged. Asset management? Overall I will rate it as 3.5. Thank you
Dear Talha, Thank you for posting your review. We regret to hear that we were not able to exceed your expectations. It saddens us to hear that based on your experience our service is only rated 3.5 stars. We understand your disappointment and we are on process of refurbishing our facilities to offer much improved service. Thank you for your understanding. Sincerely, The team of Anantara Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort

amazing desert oasis”
Resort is 2 hours away from the city. Staff was very accommodating. Food was great but pricey. Rooms were gorgeous. Great place to relax and unwind!
Dear Catherine, Thank you for your review. Indeed, QAS is located in the mythical Empty Quarters. A magical journey in QAS feels like being in One Thousand and One Nights. We hope to welcome you back on another magical journey. Sincerely, Husam Khraisat Executive Assistant Manager

We had a great time and a unique experience, in spite of the weather being a bit unpleasant in the afternoon (it was windy those days). The long drive from Dubai was definitely worth it. The rooms and facilities are fantastic and there was a good choice of activities. we did the early morning dune bashing; it started at 05.15 am and watched the sunrise... the scenery is breathtaking :)
Dear Emile, Thank you for staying with us. We are truly delighted that we have exceeded your expectations. We hope that you will visit us again during winter season; the desert landscape turns into more beautiful and pleasant landscape with cool and breezy weather. Looking forward on your next visit. Sincerely, Axel Bethke General Manager
Hotel is excellent, good location, customer service and people are excellent. Room is huge with amazing bathub. For the breakfast we stay two days, the option for two days are both the same nothing speciam. The food is quite pricely.
Dear Carolyn, Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback following your stay in QAS. My team and i are delighted to hear that you found our service top notch. On the other note, please be assured that I will relay your message regarding the breakfast variety to our Executive Chef. Thank you once again and we look forward to welcome you back. Sincerely, Axel Bethke - General Manager
I have stayed at several anantaras and generally the quality is excellent... this is probably my favourite stay.. staff, facilities and the general atmosphere was great. Food was top notch, we will be back.. can recommend to anyone for a romantic trip.. especially in a 1 bed pool villa, we felt totally in our own place allowing us to relax. And completely private!

Beautiful hotel and surrounds. The staff were excellent. The breakfast was also excellent. My only complaint was that the restaurants felt quite resort like and we were after something more special/romantic.
Dear Alice, Thank you for leaving such lovely comments. We are very delighted that you had an amazing experience throughout your stay in Qasr Al Sarab. My team and I are thrilled that we have exceeded your expectations and we have made you leave with an amazing story.

Perfect Getaway in Abu Dhabi”
Location Perfect & beautiful. Really extra ordinary place with superb service & facility. They also provide nurse service that taking care for guest who is sick. They taking care of me very well until I get better. Thank you so much for that.
Beautiful desert resort”
I have visited Dubai many times and this is such a relief to be away from the city! The sand dunes surrounding the resort are massive and beautiful, with amazing vistas in all directions that can be viewed from all parts of the resort. I enjoyed horseback riding in the desert (a first) and certainly plan to return.
